The Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University (SU) is collaborating with Staples, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS) on an initiative focused on the supply-chain field.
The Whitman School includes the H.H. Franklin Center for Supply Chain Management.
The partnership allows the Whitman School supply-chain faculty and students to analyze two initiatives, according to a news release the school distributed last week.
In the first project, Whitman faculty and students will analyze fulfillment operations and make recommendations regarding how Staples can further improve its inventory and distribution decisions.
“Staples already has an excellent distribution system, with the capability to deliver next-day to 96 percent of the United States’ population,” Burak Kazaz, SU professor of supply chain and executive director of the Franklin Center, contended in the news release.
